The Red Violin (1998)

IMDb plot summary: A perfect red-colored violin inspires passion, making its way through three centuries over several owners and countries, eventually ending up at an auction where it may find a new owner.
Directed by François Girard. Starring Anita Laurenzi, Jason Flemyng, Sylvia Chang, and Samuel L. Jackson.

This movie taps into two film-related loves of mine: movies about music and movies with many stories connected thematically. I loved watching the violin getting passed down from person to person and around the world and seeing the impact it had on all its owners. It was an immensely satisfying movie to watch, with a good score that made me *almost* like violin music. :-)

4 stars.

Flickchart: #538 out of 2205, below The Goodbye Girl and above Pretty Woman.
